    Nothing, yet.  Wait for me to move the primary service/client API
    into the kernel.  Then the only thing userland will need to mess
    with is the abstracted LWKT messaging API.

Yes, that is precisely the goal. libcaps uses unix domain sockets
for the messaging pipe but those are fairly cumbersome. I am as we
speak creating a general set of system calls to implement a generalized
LWKT messaging system that userland can use both in single-threaded
environments and in multi-threaded environments.

Since that is what I mainly want to explore I should wait until you've reached
some level of completeness I suppose :)
